Not yesterday, not today. I'm calling the vet tomorrow.

Today Oldest Brother brought my prescriptions that I left in his car and we went out to eat at Applebee's. It was a very nice time. Then we came home and puttered on the computer for awhile until he had to take a nap. Then he left for work. It was a very good time.

After he left I read until the FWiB called, and we had a nice long talk. Then I went back to reading again.

Gratitude List:

1. Oldest Brother.

2. Bjorn for as long as i have him.

3. Good meal.

4. Sybil's healthy.

5. On-line friends.

6. Good books.

Movie day

Got up later than I should have, but had enough time to shower and have coffee and breakfast before Oldest and Middle Brothers got here.

We went to the Bay Terrace movie theater, which is one of the ones where you pick your seats when you order your tickets, and they have those fabulous reclining lounge chairs for seats. We saw Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which was not as good as the first one, I didn't think. But it was OK, and we enjoyed it.

After that we went to the Five Guys in the mall, and had our usual after movie meal, and then after that we went to the drugstore and picked up my prescriptions. Then we went back to my apartment and hung out here for about an hour.

The FWiB called and they left. The FWiB and I had a nice talk, and that's about it for the day. Except that Oldest Brother told me when he called that I'd left my prescriptions in the car. So he's going to bring them tomorrow and we'll spend part of the day together.

Bjorn ate well this morning but I don't think he's going to eat well tonight. Still, I'll try to get him to. I clipped his front claws while Oldest Brother was here to help me, but I hardly needed his help, Bjorn let me do it easily. I need to clip Sybil as well but I doubt she'll be so malleable.

Gratitude List:

1. My brothers, especiall Oldest Brother being willing to bring my med back tomorrow.

2. The FWiB.

3. Bjorn.

4. Day out.

5. Lovely weather.

6. Five Guys bacon cheeseburgers.

Busy day

Started with therapy, which was good. I got a little bit into some of my real problems with hoarding and cleaning.

Then to work which was again very short staffed. Not too busy though because the schools are closed for Rosh Hashanah. Got through that OK.

After work I headed for Boston Market as usual, when my phone rang. The Kid called! So I stood outside the restaurant and had a nice talk. It was good to hear from her.

Went to Boston Market, and the FWiB called. So we talked too. And that was very nice.

Then my meeting, which was good. J made it for the first time in awhile, and we took the bus back together after.

Bjorn ate this morning, at least some, and he ate tonight, at least some. I'm going to try and get him to eat more tonight after I get done here.

Tomorrow is the day Oldest Brother and I take Middle Brother to the movies. Which should be fun.

Gratitude List:

1. Bjorn ate at least some twice today.

2. The FWiB.

3. The Kid.

4. Therapy.

5. My meetings and the people there.

6. Friends.

Because my period is so heavy I have to change tampons almost every hour, and I just felt draggy, and I oerslept cause I forgot to set the alarm.

So I spent most of the day in bed, with one brief foray out to the bagel store for brunch and to the discount store for milk and pads. And a few brief forays to the living room to use the computer. I finished reading The God Stalker Chronicles, which is God Stalk and Dark of the Moon, which I had read before of course, but now for the first time I downloaded the next two to my Nook as an omnibus edition, and I'm reading them.

The FWiB called and we had a good talk. And [personal profile] mashfanficchick texted a bit, so that was nice.

Bjorn ate very little for dinner last night and little for breakfast, but he just ate ok for dinner tonight, so I feel better. I think that I'm losing him though, and I don't know what to do.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWIB.

2. Bjorn while I have him.

3. Good books, and my Nook to read them on.

4. Time to take off.

5. Bagels.

6. Friends.

We were short-staffed to start out with today, and then one person went home with a migraine, leaving us only three people to finish out the day. We managed somehow but we were kept hopping! I did the Teen Lounge, got about 10 kids.

After work I got a call from the FWiB and we talked as I went to my psychiatrist appointment. Got there early so to kill time I went to Dunkin' Donuts and had coffee and a French cruller.

After the appointment I stopped and did a small bit of shopping on the way home.

Had my left over sundae from Carvel last week.

Called The Kid when I got home but she didn't answer.

Bjorn did not eat breakfast at all, but was eating dinner when last seen. We'll see how he does.

TMI, I know, but I started a period for the first time in several months today. I had thought I was done with them.

Happy New Year to all who celebrate!

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Cats.

3. Survived the day.

4. Ice cream.

5. My psychiatrist and my meds.

6. Didn't need my umbrella.

Fairly normal day

I went to work, got there on time, did the laptop program with the teens, got a reasonable turnout. That was it for work.

The FWiB didn't call, but I knew he wasn't going to because he went out to dinner, so no biggie.

After work I went to my meeting, which was good. I chaired, the topic was patience.

Bjorn ate a good breakfast this morning so I feel better about him not eating at all well last night. We shall see how he eats tonight.

And that's about it.

Still no word from Dreamwidth on my support request.

Gratitude List:

1. Bjorn ate well this morning.

2. The FWiB.

3. My meetings and the people there.

4. Only rained in the afternoon.

5. Air conditioning, still.

6. Bed soon.

Well. Looks like I solved the line break problem on my own. I unchecked the "disable auto format" box, and now it seems to be working.

Bad accident in Flushing

A tour bus hit an MTA bus and careened into Kennedy Chicken, killing three (the driver of the tour bus, a passenger on the MTA bus, and a pedestrian), injuring at least 19, and starting a fire in Kennedy Chicken. I was home asleep at 6 am when this happened around the corner from me. But I was affected by the traffic snarl it caused, because my bus was rerouted and I had to walk up to the Whitestone Expressway to get my bus.

Aside from that the day was OK. I did the gaming program with the teens and it was moderately successful.

After work the FWiB called and we talked while I went to meet up with [personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother. We went to Applebee's for $6.99 burgers for dinner. Delicious.

Came home and fed the cats and turtle. Bjorn ate this morning, but tonight he ate almost nothing. I may have to take him back to the vet.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Friends.

3. Wasn't involved in the accident.

4. Delicious burger.

5. Air conditioning.

6. Bjorn as long as I have him.

Still having to put breaks in by hand, still no word from Dreamwidth.

 things are a mesws, I'm tired, I'm bored and I've been working like a dog...
I love my life.
R is fine, even if we had to... like not see each other for over a week again (seriously, is this what adult relationships are like?)

I'm still hunting for a place that kind sark my interest.
and of course every day on the train I have this small thing kicking the back of my seat, "are you done? are you done? are you gonna update? are you gonna write again?" it is kinda freaky when I have the urge to turn artound and snap at it to cut it off or i'll delete every file on the tablet.... 

but I'm sorry I've been not writing so stories/fics/drabbles are on hold for a bit longer.

pretty much that.. life is fine, for once, even if I'm not where I was supposed to be, even if I'm not how I was supposed to be and even if I survived yet another year without him. it took a lot of effort to do things like usual this month.

some say Always, Some say Okay, Some say Forever, I'd be forever Sorrow. becvause in Spetember Sorrow means so much more.

<i>"Sweet Merry Doll" he greeted with a dismissive smile. "I've seen teh BlackEagle fight, a sweet merry doll like you cannot order me around, go back and tell your mistress I'll only deal with someone born on a noble cradle." the lady, almost half a foot shorter moved closer after jumping down her horse, her banner still high in the hands of her esquire. 
"sweet you call me, thought I'm not, nor I'm merry... and Doll?" her eyes ablaze with blottled fury and power and her face as cold and hard as stone. " I am no doll unless Dolls have claws and fangs and fire..." the man backed away scared of the fierce creature in front of him, and the clothe that seemed flames on her hair that the wind was waving aroud. She smiled; her sword already out of the sheet. "you will respect Irina Borkbal, from the Crown House of the dessrts of fire, or I'll have you fearing her."
the knights snickered as she went back and in one fast jump was on her stallion. "show me the way... My Lord, for your Queen is waiting for me."
the man looked startled to the small group, the simple braid tied with rbbons like fire and the plain clothes, even if in vivid colors. "Lady Borkbal..." the man said with a bow. "Owen Teagan will have you in LIlly's Meadows, The Queen and the King cannot offer you their palace so your uncle cannot claim they're interfeering in your nation's politics or call you a traitor or a prisoner; She sends her apology..."
"Okay, show me the way to this... Teagan man's home..."</i>

Slept late

Though not as late as I could have I guess, so that's OK. My milk had turned so I ate used up the last of the powdered instant flavored coffee I had leftover from the cottage, then went out later for brunch from Dunkin" Donuts.

Spent most of the day puttering on-line, or reading. I've started rereading Godstalk, the first of the Godstalker books by P C Hodgell. I've read the first one many times, the second one I think once, and I didn't know until recently that there were more. After I finish the second one I shall have to see about getting more on my Nook.

The FWiB called and we had a nice long talk. Texted back and forth with [Bad username or unknown identity: Mashfanficchick"], we may go out tomorrow.

Bjorn didn't eat any of his leftovers this morning, but he ate so much last night that I'll only be worried if he doesn't eat tonight. He's in the bathroom now eating, I hope.

Called The Kid, no answer. Left a message, hope she calls back.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Days to read.

3. Good books.

4. Friends.

5. Cats.

6. Have more reding time tonight.

Edited to add: Still having to put the breaks in by hand.

It went OK, nothing much to say about it. Got a text from [personal profile] mashfanficchick from Renn Faire, where she had found a print of St Michael that she thought I might like, and wanted to know if she should buy it for me. I said yes, I haven't heard back from her so I hope she got it. Edited to add, just heard from her, she did. Yay!

After work I just came home. The FWiB called and we had a nice long talk.

And that's about all.

Put in a support request to Dreamwidth about the issue I'm having with the page and paragraph breaks, no reply yet.

Oh, and Bjorn ate more this morning, again, so I'm hopeful...

Gratitude List:

1. Cats.

2. The FWiB.

3. Friends.

4. Quiet day.

5. Despite looking grey and rainy this mornning, so I took my umbrella, it cleared up nicely.

6. Ice cream with dinner.

Slow day at work

I started out the day by, as I said last night, giving Bjorn the leftovers from his dinner the night before. He ate some of it, not all of it, but enough that I am encouraged and am going to keep trying.

Work was slow, since I was originally supposed to be free today I ended up only being on the schedule for the desk one hour. So I was kind of bored.

After work I went to Boston Market for dinner as usual for Friday. Then the FWiB called and we talked until my meeting. The meeting was quite good, a new person came.

Came home and am now feeding the cats again.

Gratitude List:

1. Bjorn ate some breakfast.

2. The FWib.

3. My meetings and the people there.

4. Air conditioning (it was very humid today)

5. Oldest Brother was able to get his muffler fixed.

6. Quiet day at work.

Had to put the breaks in by hand again.

Not much in the way of news

Except that Aunt Helen finally heard from the contractor about doing the cottage porch and the back stairs. He won't be able to do it until October because he's taking a vacation. But as long as it gets done before next summer, it's all good.

Aside from that, work was about as usual. Stopped at the bank and the drug store on the way home from work, nothing too interesting. Had some of the Ben and Jerry's ice cream I got awhile ago, the cinnamon bun flavor. It was quite good. And had a can of the Vernor's that I brought back from upstate with dinner. Always good.

The FWiB called and we talked, all is well.

I have reached a decision about Bjorn and his eating issues. Assuming he doesn't finish his dinner tonight, which is the most likely case, instead of leaving the remains for Sybil I'm going to refrigerate it and try him again with it in the morning when I take my shower.

Called the Kid, just got her voice mail.

And that's all.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Ice cream.

3. Heard from the contractor.

4. Vernor's.

5. Despite the humidity it didn't rain.

6. Quiet day at work.

Have to put the breaks in by hand again. Maybe I should get in touch with Dreamwidth and discuss this.

What the hell is with this? This makes twice now. I got up at 8, and sat here all day long, and they never showed up.

I finally gave up and went out with [personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother, first to dinner at Qdoba, then to several Judaica bookstores in search of Rosh Hashanah books for Theo. Then we ended up at Carvel of course, it being Wednesday.

I had a psychiatrist appointment but I cancelled it. I'll reschedule for next week or the week after, I have enough of my meds to last.

The FWiB called but we didn't talk long because I was out.

I fed Bjorn with a can of the new food, the chicken that he ate before. I hope he eats it now. He's in the bathroom eating now.

Now lets see if the line breaks and paragraph breaks are back or if I have to put them in by hand.

Gratitude List:

1. I didn't waste vacation time on this nonsense.

2. The FWiB.

3. Friends.

4. Carvel.

5. Air conditioning.

6. Bed soon.

Nope, putting in the breaks now.

I did the laptop program with the teens, and it was pretty successful.

[personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother kindly picked up Bjorn's food for me today, so tomorrow I can get it and feed him the chicken that he seems to like better than the tuna.

Had a couple of problematic patrons, but nothing I couldn't handle.

The FWiB called and we talked, not for long though s he was very tired from having been out all day today.

And I had my meeting, which was very good, we had someone visit from another group which was nice.

Gratitude List:

1. My meetings and the people there.

2. The FWiB.

3. [personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother.

4. Free day tomorrow to wait for the gas valve inspection.

5. Beautiful weather today.

6. Cookies.

Putting the line and paragraph breaks in by hand is getting really old.

So here it is 9/11 again. And not much to say about it. Every year it slides farther into the past. But I feel the need to remark and remember.

It was a beautiful blue day today, as it was that year. And as always I went to work. I didn't think about it during the day, that much has changed over the years. And I didn't do a display this year.

It was a pretty good day, I had the first of my after school programs, the gaming program, today. Worked out well.

And I did the walk-around computer tutor for an hour, which is really kind of pointless.

After work I talked to the FWiB, and really that's about all.

Last night Bjorn didn't eat as well as he has been. I don't think he likes the tuna flavor as well as the chicken. Hopefully he eats better tonight, though all I have left is the tuna, and only two cans (well one now) of that. I asked [personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother to pick up a case of the chicken for him tomorrow.

Last night when I posted the line and paragraph breaks didn't work for some reason and I had to put them in by hand. I am going to try tonight again. We shall see.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. The first responders of 9/11.

3. My turtle.

4. My cats.

5. Friends.

6. Knowing enough html to put the line breaks in.

OK, I did preview post and there were no line breaks or paragraph break, putting them in by hand.

I hate, genuinely hate, having to complain about customer service, but...

Last week Monday, I was supposed to get a package. Lucifer DVD's s1-2, that I had bought on Amazon. They didn't show up, despite both Amazon and he local postal site saying they'd been delivered. So after some phone calls with amazon, a bit of a wait, and another phone call, the dvd's would be sent over a second time

Today they finally arrived. Only instead of doing one of two options
1. Ring the doorbell, hand it over to me
2. Leave a notice in my mail slot, telling me to pick it up a the post office tomorrow

They decided to go with another option
3 Jam the dvd's as far into the slot as they could get it, almost ruining the carton packaging, and making it so the package was sticking half way out of the post box, so that anyone passing by could pull it out.

I'm assuming that said third option is what happened last week as well.

Anyway, my aunt who works for B-Post told me that these things are taken rather serious, so I figured I'd send a complaint. Still felt bad for snitching, but man, if I hadn't been keeping a close eye on the delivery online, I could have lost those dvds for the second time.
